Lomon Billions to exhibit at ACS 2018

19 December 2017

Lomon Billions, now the world’s fourth largest producer of high performance titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigments and number one in Asia in terms of TiO2 pigment production capacity, will exhibit at ACS 2018 in Indianapolis, USA from April 10-12, 2018.

Lomon Billions was formed by a billion-dollar merger between TiO2 pigment producers Henan Billions Chemicals Company and Lomon in October 2016 and is listed on the Shenzhen stock exchange with a current market value of US$5.8bn.

The company manufactures high performance chloride and sulfate TiO2 pigments for all major applications and has an annual production capacity of more than 700,000 tonnes.

It’s the number one TiO2 pigment producer in China and is China’s largest TiO2 pigment exporter.

"We’re excited to be exhibiting at the ACS for the first time as Lomon Billions,” says Julie Reid, Marketing Director.

"People who visit our booth in 2018 might recognise our TiO2 pigment experts from ACS 2016.

"We were working as separate companies then, promoting our pigments from separate booths.

"This year we’ll all be together at the Lomon Billions booth number 607, located right at the front of the exhibition hall.”

Lomon Billions TiO2 pigments are approved and used by global coatings and inks manufacturers.

At ACS 2018 the company will be promoting its TiO2 pigments for coatings and inks including its LOMON LR-982 pigment and its specialist BILLIONS TR52 pigment for inks; the versatile BILLIONS BLR-698 and LOMON R-996 pigments, both suitable for a wide range of coatings applications; and its specialised pigments for industrial coatings, including highly durable LOMON LR-972 pigment for automotive OEM and LOMON LR-961 pigment for electrodeposition coatings – all made using the sulfate process.

"We also produce chloride TiO2 pigments using state-of-the-art Western chloride technology,” said Julie.

"In fact, we’re the biggest producer of chloride TiO2 pigment in China.

"At the ACS we’ll be promoting our new chloride TiO2 pigments, including BILLIONS BLR-895 pigment, designed for an extensive range of architectural and industrial coatings.

"We’ve developed our new chloride TiO2 pigments in conjunction with our customers who value our innovative pigments and the technical support we can offer.

"We focus on reliability, innovation and technical excellence to deliver product consistency and customer satisfaction.

"Our 12,000m2 purpose-built technology centre is fitted with sophisticated analytical and application testing equipment and staffed with a large dedicated team of technical experts.

"We’re working hand in hand with our customers to deliver the technical excellence they expect.”

Lomon Billions has almost 30 years of TiO2 pigment manufacturing experience, four established ISO certified production plants at three locations in China and its own ilmenite mine.

Highlights in the first half of 2017 include a 20% increase in chloride pigment production and annual revenues of US$1.454M.

"We’re a dynamic, global business with a strong and expanding global presence and we’re investing in the future,” says Julie.

"We have plans to significantly grow our production capacity – we’re aiming to become the global market leader with around 1.3Mt of TiO2 pigment capacity by the mid 2020’s.

We have our own ilmenite mine, a key raw material for TiO2 production, and our objective is to become a fully integrated pigment producer.”
